Alex got baptised today. The preachers wife let me come to the back where they change clothes to get my pictures. I ended up taking pictures of the other people getting baptised because they wasn't sure if the family members would come to the front of the church to get pictures.

Update on Perky

I called Linda today to find out what the Doctors at Chicago had to say. They tested her reflexes and they're fine. They gave her a prescription for the drowling. They said she may need a feeding tube soon because it's getting harder for her to eat, her breathing is ok for now so no machine is required yet. They're sending her to a Dr. in Iowa City that has been specially trained in ALS. Linda hopes they can get her in soon, she'll update us as soon as she can.

Back to Work

Well I guess my vacation is over. It was back to work today, the children don't go back until Sept. 2nd. Now that I'm back to work, I look forward to my first vacation on Thur. Fri and Monday. It's amazing to go back to work and then end up getting 3 days off right away. There's alot of paperwork at the beginning of the year, It takes forever to fill out the files for the new kids. When the paperwork is somewhat done we have to help the teachers get their rooms together, for some reason I get the job of hooking up the computers.

Brothers Being Silly

I took these pictures of my Uncles Kenneth and Bunny (nickname). Point is think about it Bunny giving Kenneth bunny ears.
I didn't get this picture in time, they told me to take a picture with their fingers up their nose. By the time I got my camera into position they got out of position. Although Kenneth is almost close to being caught. Isn't it amazing that no matter how old they get brothers can still act silly when they get together.

The Gang

Mom's sister came in from Iowa and her brother from Colorado was also in. I had to make my way back to pennington to see everyone. While there we all went to Abingdon to visit another sister. Above is the picture of mom, shelby, perky and kenneth.
This picture has everyone in it except for shelby. You must notice perkys sweatshirt it's has Jeff Gordon on it, she just bought it today. It would have been nice to have the whole gang together in one picture but this is as close as we're gonna get for now.

Homecoming Day!

Today Alex got home from camp. They got in just befor 3:00p.m. He told me all the things he did. He said he had lots of fun and would go again next year. I didn't realize how lonely this house is without him. Chelsea don't spend much time at home, I think she spent one night here the whole week.

This is what to much fun at camp will do to someone. About 7:30p.m. I went to mom's house for our evening walk and 30min later this is what I found when I got home. He's laying on blankets at the bottom of his bed passed out. I couldn't find him at first, I kept yelling through the house telling him this isn't funny, not to be hiding from me. On my second trip into the bedroom I turned on the light and that's what I found.

News Re: Perky

Today we got the news about mom's sister Perky. She's been at the mayo clinic this week to find out what's going on, the news they got was that she has Lou Gehrig's disease. Linda wants to bring her to Virginia to visit her family, she thought about stopping here either before or after the visit in virginia. We need to pray for Perky, I know she has some hard days ahead, and her family.

Church Camp

My baby left for church camp this morning, bright and early. We were at the church at 6:00a.m. The bus didn't leave until 6:45a.m. It's a 5 1/2 hr drive to camp in Miamisburg OH.
He's on his way into the bus, they're loading up the kids so they can leave, he sit up front so I got his picture without having to go into the bus.

The buses are pulling away, the first one has all the kids and adult chaperones and the 2nd van has all the luggage.
This is the first time he's been away this long, he has spent the night at his grandma house once. This time he wont be back until friday, don't know what I'm gonna do with my self.
